K-9 teams get certified for odor recognition at Kohl Center

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department hosted almost 40 different K-9 teams from across the Midwest for an ATF odor recognition training and certification session at the Kohl Center.

Sgt. Mick Price and K-9 Yachi with the Capitol Police Department, earned their certification today.
Yachi, a yellow lab, is a detection and a vapor wake dog — meaning she’s trained to smell body-worn explosives.

“If you brought a German shepherd around people — they can be a little more eerie of them,” Price said. “A lab is super easy to get them around people. For the vapor wake dog, I work crowds of people and I can take her all around, get her close to people.”

The ATF certifications prepare teams to work larger scale events, like the upcoming Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee. K-9 teams get certified for odor recognition at Kohl Center
